Modern Villa Captures Sea Views in Koh Samui, Thailand — 1

Sicart & Smith Architects is an international boutique design firm in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. Led by Franck Sicart and Julien Smith, two French architects, the company develops modern and tropical designs.

The concept of 180 Samui started with the careful analysis of the site: a breathtaking view of Chaweng Bay in Koh Samui, Thailand, and a massive rock that needed to be integrated in the project. The result is a horizontal design, low roof-lines and a simple material palette.

The villa is organized around an impressive pool overlooking the view, set perpendicular to the main rock and offering a dramatic feel. A three-sided infinity edge merges the pool, the sea, the sky and its reflection; it seems like the swimming pool is floating in thin air.

The villa accommodates five bedrooms with further facilities such as a spa room, a gym area and a rooftop chill-out terrace. The swimming pool is surrounded by an open kitchen and pool lounge with library and pool table.

Terrazzo and teak wood are the main materials used for the design with subtle variations and accents of black, cream, polished and raw finishes for the terrazzo.

Most of the furniture has built-in features. The sofa in the lounge is sunken into the floor so that when seated, the inhabitants have a clear view of the horizon. Beds are centered in the middle of the bedrooms to maximize sea vistas. A light touch of aquamarine has been added to complete the balance and  harmony of the project.

40 Minimalist Kitchens to Get Super Sleek Inspiration

For so many families, the kitchen is a focal point of the home. Not only do parents spend hours each week cooking, children sidle up to the kitchen bar for after-school snacks or even to do homework. The importance of the kitchen in everyday activities means that it can feel uncomfortable to simplify the space so that it meets with minimalist aesthetics. After all, where is the warmth of a stark which countertop or a monochromatic kitchen island? Still, the kitchens featured in this post manage to not only incorporate the necessary appliances and seating that is required of a kitchen, they also ensure that each space is imbued with its own sense of style. Take a look and find some inspiration for your next simplification project.


Visualizer: Filip Sapojnicov  

The color white will be a theme throughout this post, starting with this first kitchen. White is an easy way to convey minimalism as it immediately feels clean and simple.


Designer: Piotr Matuszek & Gosia Czarny  

In an open floor plan like this one, a white minimalist kitchen design overflows into the rest of the public space, which also uses white on white as a unifying style.


Visualizer: Filip Sapojnicov  

Minimalist black and white kitchens are another common sight, with the contrast in shades adding a contemporary feel.


Designer: Zitturi  

Of course, where minimalism is at play, the combination of white and wood cannot be far behind. Here, a white kitchen sets off a deep red wood dining table to great effect.


Visualizer: Robby Brymer  

A white subway tile backsplash is very on trend. For more examples of stunning white on white designs, be sure to check out 30 Modern White Kitchens That Exemplify Refinement.


Visualizer: Alex Dorokin  

A minimalist kitchen does not have to be complete devoid of color. In this simple design, bits of color in the way of natural wood, yellow, and red manage to shine through.


Visualizer: Ilkin Gurbanov  

This next example is even more colorful with deep sage green cabinetry and a mustard yellow refrigerator. Minimalist kitchen design, after all, is not about color but about clean lines and clutter-free organization.


Visualizer: Orange Graphics  

In this lovely kitchen, minimalist shelving keeps kitchen necessities liked mugs and bowls tucked away neatly but also easy to reach when they are needed.


Designer: Zunica  

The furniture that’s used in a kitchen also plays a critical role in its overall style. Here, black minimalist kitchen stools match nicely with the simple pendant lighting for a modern, unified look.


Visualizer: Phil Ryan  

A good minimalist kitchen design maximizes the space available, as evidenced in this simple, wood kitchen.


Visualizer: P&M Studio  

In another example of stylish white and wood kitchens, this space has a bit more square footage but still defaults to simplicity.


Visualizer: Patricia Bagienski  

The use of levels is another minimalist design technique. Here, the kitchen is elevated above the living area and shelving continues the stair step effect.


Visualizer: Ivanna Pavlus & Anna Neiman  

A minimalist kitchen can also make unique accessories stand out, as with the unique kitchen stools in this space.


Visualizer: Orange Graphics  

Moving into some darker options, this copper and black minimalist kitchen is almost futuristic in its style.


Visualizer: Marina Selivanova  

But a white minimalist kitchen with high shelves and black appliances can have its own futuristic appeal, too.


Designer: Yael Perry  

Indoor plants are a welcome addition to white on white kitchen design, adding both color and texture.


Visualizer: M3 Architecture  

In marble kitchens like this one, the cool, smooth surfaces and minimalist decor scream luxury.


Visualizer: Plasterlina  

In another colorful example, a bright yellow backsplash creates contrast and joy against the black minimalist kitchen design.


Architect: Zoom Architecture  

Another example of yellow accent kitchens that work is this, which uses white as its neutral contrast rather than black.


Visualizer: Inuti  

Among black and white kitchens, this one is particularly sparse in its design.


Visualizer: Modom Studio  

Against the white design, the large, unique dining pendant light becomes a centerpiece in this open home.


Architect: Project A01 Architects  

The geometric minimalist kitchen island in this design is extremely unique.


Visualizer: Anastasia Andryushchenko   

White and wood cabinetry in this kitchen create almost a dip dyed effect.


Visualizer: 3D World Renderings  

This white and wood kitchen also features an island and stainless steel appliances.


Visualizer: Dark Room Studio  

Some, but not all, Scandinavian style kitchens also have elements of minimalism like this one.


Designer: Arent & Pyke  

For an artistic minimalist kitchen design, it would be hard to do better than this white design with bright red and green accents.


Visualizer: Artyom Bezfamilniy  

Open cabinets force minimalist kitchens to stay clean while a red contrast shelving unit brings in a bit of brightness.


Visualizer: Marcin Kasperski  

Some small minimalist kitchens are clean and simple by requirements, as this colorful but small space can attest.


Architect: 3XA  

And going even smaller is this narrow minimalist kitchen that no doubt sits somewhere close to a city center.


Visualizer: Kuoo Architects  

An all white design is how this narrow minimalist kitchen keeps from getting too cramped


Designer: Pura Arquitectura  

The exposed wood beams in this kitchen give it a bit of a rustic feel, considering its otherwise minimalist style.


Designer: Batavia  

A window to the outside can also be quite helpful when designing for a small kitchen like this one.


Visualizer: Brainfactory  

Minimalist design does not have to preclude luxuries like an eat-in kitchen, as seen here.


Designer: Helen Baranova   
Visualizer: Vitaliy Bozhenov  

When a kitchen is open to any visitor, simple colors like white and wood, plus cabinets that hide clutter, can be the best choice.

This minimalist kitchen with island is actually quite large, demonstrating that minimalist does not have to equal tiny.


Visualizer: Insight Studio  

Creative minimalist kitchen storage underneath the island in this design is clever and practical.


Visualizer: SOD Architects  

In another black on black design option, open minimalist shelving forces homeowners to pare down.


Visualizer: Mitaka Dimov  

This dark kitchen appears to contrast with the rest of the house, going from black to white rather abruptly. The result is chic if a bit jarring.


Visualizer: Igor Sirotov  

Lighting underneath the cabinetry and inside the shelving gives this dark minimalist kitchen a rather ethereal feel.


Visualizer: Polyviz Studio  

And here, a final example of just how stunning minimalist black kitchens can be, particularly when they make use of natural wood elements as well.

Apartment in Texas Hides Mondrian-Inspired Wall Design


Sanders Architecture collaborated with Cravotta Interiors to design and develop a modern apartment in downtown Austin, Texas. An array of materials and textures make this place vivid and appealing. Moreover, each functional area has its own personality, as you can observe in the photo gallery below.

“Close attention to detail is key to the beauty of this 3,100 square-foot (288 square-meter) condo customization,” the architects said. “A rearrangement of spaces and a playful embrace of existing infrastructure was necessary to accommodate a family of four in this high-rise urban condominium.”

A steel and glass wall divides the living areas; this installation is inspired by the art of Piet Mondrian and is undoubtedly the highlight of the apartment. It also serves a practical purpose, as it opens up to reveal a television set. Check out the pool table next to it, that can transform into a welcoming dining table for eight.

Large expanses of glass bring views of downtown Austin inside and keep the room naturally lit all day long. Moving over to the kitchen, you notice a colorful backsplash against dark-colored appliances, which makes the space come alive. The large kitchen island features bar tables on one side, making it perfect for small group parties. Any elements you find particularly appealing? Photography by Ryann Ford.
